We want to thank you all for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. This pandemic has taken its toll on all of us in some way or another, but we want you to know that our goal is to keep our residents safe. Anyone that enters our building must be screened for temperature and will complete a questionnaire regarding signs and symptoms of Covid-19. We ask that you do not enter our facility if you are feeling under the weather.
Many of you were able to visit your loved ones in our outdoor area over the summer. With the changing seasons, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has allowed for indoor visitation. All visits must be scheduled and will be conducted indoors in a common area until further notice. Please call the front desk to schedule a visit. You will be allowed to schedule two visitors at a time for 30 minutes. Face masks must be worn, and social distancing must be maintained. Visitors are allowed ONLY through the front door reception area; visitors may not roam the building and are not allowed in a resident’s apartment. We would like to remind everyone that outside visitors are not allowed in resident’s apartments, that includes entering through the patios. We are obligated to follow the rules and recommendations set forth by ODH and the CDC and we appreciate your help complying with this. If the Ohio Public Health Advisory System changes to a purple status for Cuyahoga County, we will have to stop all visitation. We appreciate your help in our goal of keeping our residents safe.
We are now testing staff every two weeks and residents are tested on an as needed basis. We are required to report any positive resident and staff cases on a weekly basis to the health department. ODH will update their site weekly, and you are able to check this information at https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/dashboards/long-term-care-facilities/cases. We are asking that our residents only leave the facility for necessities and medical appointments. Residents must wear face masks when in common areas of the building and social distancing should be maintained.
